This is not apropo. They do not sell popped maize at movie nights. Unpopped kernels get in the field turf and just sit there, birds dont eat them and they don't disintegrate in a timely manner. Hotdogs, pretzels, candy are all for sale. 

Also my vote finally counts--all previous campaigns I backed the loser.

This movie and all of the others that were up for vote, were not something my family and I were interested in seeing. It’s a cool idea, I just wish better movies were selected.

What were the other options? I thought Black Panther was overrated - it has a 97 on Rotten Tomatoes, get a grip people, it's not better than The Dark Knight, or Thor Ragnarok...it's probably an 80-85, but 97??? sorry, I digress - but I still thought it was a good movie and really fun. Family friendly too, obviously, as they wouldn't show it at the stadium otherwise. Not sure what the complaint is here.

Wait, what?  Black Panther (an Avengers movie designed for teenagers) and Moana (an animated movie built for young children) are not good enough family choices?

MMmmmmkaaayyy, methinks 'family' movie night should be a documentary about the ills of Beethoven's music?  I mean, what is OP looking for??

People just seem to be curious about what kind of movie you and your family would prefer to watch. A Wrinkle in Time. Black Panther. Back to the Future. Jurassic Park. Cars 3. Justice League. Moana. The Last Jedi. Honestly, the only type of movie missing from the list is The Eternal Lightness of Being or The Longest Day. Both of which they wouldn’t air for obvious reasons.

Isn’t RT just an evaluation of positive/negative reviews? 97% just means that it was a nearly universally loved movie. That doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a better made movie than others. So I don’t think you can really deem that it’s overrated and cite RT as evidence. I didn’t see many calls for Black Panther to win all the Academy Awards or anything like that.

Well..... part of the problem is there just hasn’t been many good movies come out lately, but Isle of Dogs, 15:17 to Paris, I Can Only Imagine would all have been better than what was on the list. I would have settled for Married with Children or Sanford and Son reruns to be honest.

15:17 to Paris was widely disliked. It did pretty bad at the box office. And isn’t a “family friendly” movie.  And I Can Only Imagine is a religious movie, which they’d never pick for obvious reasons. Isle of Dogs could’ve been chosen, but Wes Anderson movies aren’t for everyone. 

I don’t think you’ll ever like the movies at these kinds of events if the movies you chose are indicative of your personal preference.

I highly doubt that very many kids would enjoy sitting through 15:17. Black Panther and Jurassic Park are much more family friendly and have way more mass appeal (which is kind of the fucking point of these movie nights). And if you have to have it explained to you why they wouldn’t choose a religious movie, you’re not in this discussion in good faith.

Quick question for those who have gone...I know the on-field seats are for season ticket holders. If I get a friend to register those tickets for me, can I (non-ticket holding family) use them to watch from the field?

Yes ...season ticket holders regularly print at home as many as they can and give  them to family, friends, neighbors, etc.  No chairs (chair backs) allowed so most of your veteran (blue haired) ticket holders don’t attend. Younger crowd on blankets and they arrive early to stake out good spots that aren’t in the new blue end zones.

It's super inconvenient. You have to Click on the "Source" button. Then add in:

<oembed>URL</oembed>    where you paste in the address of the video for the URL.

Then, click Source again. You'll see an error message, but it will still post. Yeah 3.0!
